Winter Parking Designations

Map of winter parking designations at Mt Seymour

Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd. operates a Controlled Recreation Area (CRA) comprising of the Mt Seymour ski area and parking lots. The CRA occupies 81 of 3,500 hectares (approximately 2%) of park land.

Mount Seymour Provincial Park has experienced an exponential growth in snowshoers and backcountry users and we are working hard with BC Parks to find solutions to the resulting parking shortage for these provincial park users. The snowshoe/backcountry parking plan will be implemented throughout the winter operating season. With peak periods being December 26 - January 7 and weekends in January and February.

To assist BC Parks and their visitors, Mt Seymour Resorts Ltd has created and maintains a groomed pathway on the west side of the road from Parking Lot 1 to the First Lake/Dog Mountain trailhead. This wide pathway allows backcountry users to safely access the backcountry trails.

On occasion when the parking lots are nearing capacity, Mt Seymour will set up a traffic stop starting at the 3.5 km mark on the road. The stop is usually short with vehicles being released at regular intervals. The stop is implemented to ease congestion within the parking lots and to efficiently manage the flow of traffic in and out of the park.

Mt. Seymour Resorts Ltd also offers a shuttle bus service from Rupert Skytrain Station in East Vancouver and Parkgate Community Centre at the bottom of the mountain. The shuttle bus is a great way to avoid parking congestion during peak periods.
